About this site..
Vintage Vacation Photos is the best site to view many old travel and vacation photos from around the world.
The idea for this site sprang from a simple purchase: an old case filled with slides of a family vacation to Europe in 1962. Not only were the photos spectacular, they also represented a slice of history that isn't often seen on today's internet.
The images on this site are not professional, nor are they perfect. They are scans of old slides, most from the 1940s through 1970s, the golden age of slide photography.
I encourage you to take a vacation into the past, through the eyes of normal people, those who chronicled their journeys. I hope you enjoy these photos.
